Tales from the Tao: The Wisdom of the Taoist Masters Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An inspiring collection of the best stories from the Taoist masters, Chuang Tzu and Lao Tzu—all presented in a beautiful volume with over 100 black-and-white photographs. For thousands of years, students of the Tao have gleaned inspiration and illumination from its parables, and these thought-provoking examples discuss topics ranging from dignity in the face of challenge, to judging character, to how to deal with loss. Whether solidifying a spiritual truth, unraveling a puzzle for contemplation, or providing a moment of humor, these tales are a mainstay of Eastern philosophy. Brief poems and intriguing quotations round out the anthology.
